What shapes you as a leader? Paul tells us to focus on what honors and exalts God in life. Jesus said that our hearts are revealed in what we do and say. The writer of Proverbs says that our hearts are the wellspring of our lives. How do we tend and care for our hearts? How do we allow God to transform our hearts? Such an essential issue shouldn’t be left to chance. Be intentional about practicing life-giving, heart-transforming habits to shape your heart, head, hands, and leadership habits

Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. —Matthew 7:24

Prayer: Lord, keep us from letting Your words flow through us without ordering the days of our lives. May we, like You, saturate our minds with God’s truth, be shaped by communion with the Father, develop intimate relationships with trusted companions, and live in the Spirit’s power. In Your name we pray, amen.
